Bulk Unfollow

insightly recently made some changes to their Follow feature which auto-checked items I did not want to follow. Now, I'm getting tons of emails when someone else changes something on the Contact record. I've noted it here:

and found another thread with similar issues:

I'd like insightly to fix the issue so that we don't have to manually uncheck everyone when we never wanted to do so in the first place.

  • A related problem we've come across lately is that, due to the new automatic follow feature, if I make bulk changes to something (opportunities, tasks, etc) in an effort to clean up the data (for example, changing the category of a list of tasks), other employees at the firm will get hundreds of needless notification emails. This was not an issue previously. Unfortunately, employees are now ignoring Insightly notifications entirely because so many of them are unwanted/unneeded.

  • My biggest annoyance with Insightly is the inability to bulk unfollow; we change accounts around regularly here and it such a laborious and time-wasting task to remove a large number of records.

     

    Please make this a priority for a fix!

  • We need to be able to bulk unfollow, it's idiotic to not be able to.

    I made a bulk edit without reviewing my follow settings (why would I) and all of a sudden I am following nearly 12800 records!!

    Seriously. What a ridiculous circumstance. Sort it out please insightly!

  • Absolutely want this feature, to do a bulk unfollow of starred records. Two possible solutions: 1) Add as an option to Standard List Views to view "All records I follow" (by object type) and then add an option under Bulk Edit to "Unfollow selected records". 2) Give us a way to export the starred records (the ones I follow) and change that field to un-starred (FALSE), then do a bulk update.
